Piemonte Moscato Passito DOC “Fulet”
The vineyards that yield this Moscato Passito are located in the area Monferrato, on wonderful hills and selected exposures.
Terre da Vino, working with the viticulturalists and winemaking staff of its members and with the scientific assistance of the University of Turin, has carried out 3 years of research into the ultra-ripening process of the muscat grape and, in particular, into the development of terpene-derived aromas in the variety.
Vineyard management practices are focused on obtaining the soundest quality fruit possible, which is absolutely necessary for prolonging the grape ripening process and ensuring high sugars and concentrated aromas.
After pressing, the must is fermented for some 10 days at 18-20°C, then matured about 12 months on the lees. During this process, the wine achieves an ideal balance between the intensity of the aromas and the overall complexity of the bouquet. A further bottle ageing completes the maturation process.
